The Banwell bypass - as approved by the Planning & Regulatory Committee in March 2023 - includes features that will reduce the identified impacts of the scheme.

The mitigations look to

  • protect the local environment, biodiversity and wildlife
  • reducing noise and visual impacts in various locations.
  • reinstate community land at Banwell Football Club
  • protect local orchards.
  • reduce the impact of any increased traffic and its speed in the nearby villages of Sandford, Winscombe and Churchill
